The Vecinos Farmworker Health Program is an independent nonprofit health care organization in western North Carolina that serves and advocates for farmworkers and their families with health care, education, community partnerships, and advocacy.  Agricultural work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the county and workers face many barriers to accessing health care. Vecinos aims to bring services directly to the workers.
